American Eagle/Connection flies into Springfield, Il.
This service is American Connection service to Saint Louis. Uses small props, but has the highest number of flights per day. Jetstream aircraft, I think. American Eagle used to fly to ORD
with larger props. They pulled out.
As mentioned before - United(Air Wisconsin) regional jets go to ORD
's are used. This is the only current Jet service.
American Trans Air(Through its regional) flies to MDW
. They use Dornair 328's.
The previously mentioned service to Chicago Meigs was by Great Lakes Aviation. They flew in their own name and in United's name, though their planes all had United colors. Beach 1900's I think. I know it was 19 seaters. I believe (I may be wrong) that this was the only service to Miegs field from anywhere for a long time. This was actually a fairly popular service, but Chicago's mayor had a vendetta against Meigs field.....
Pretty recently Northwest Airlink flew to Memphis, with props. They did not do well, and pulled out. Many others have as well. American even tried mainline jet service a while back, but it flopped. We must look better on paper than we are in reality
service to a DC area airport would be nice. That is where a lot of the O&D is to, as well as Chicago. Skyway (Midwest Express's owned regional) was seriously considering it at one time. However - this is unlikely due to the current state of the industry, and the presence of Southwest in STL
and Airtran in BMI
. We have, however, done very well recently compared to other
airports in the area.
